Goldbergs Video: Will Dungeons & Dragons Lead Adam to 'Black Magic'?

Like with most things her son adores — except herself, of course — The Goldbergs‘ Beverly has some objections to Adam’s beloved Dungeons & Dragons pastime.

“I heard all about it on 60 Minutes,” Bev declares in this exclusive clip from Wednesday’s episode (ABC, 8:30/7:30c), in which she interrupts a game between Adam and his pals. “A stuffy Southern reverend said it’s the gateway to black magic!”

But, in an attempt to change his mom’s mind, the “little devil” sacrifices himself to smothering kisses in front of his friends.

    Boy does that bring back memories. My Mom and Aunts got sucked into that too. “Dungeons and Dragons is a gateway to the occult! Their turning our children into devil worshipers!” Ah, good times.

    They always get the mechanics wrong. One line about the game and they couldn’t get it right. Yes, I’m a huge nerd, I lived through the satanic panic. Fortunately my parents were sane people.

      Fire newt. potion of fire resistance…sounds legit. It’s a 17 or greater on a d20. AD&D wasn’t THAT complex.

        This is 2E. Long before d20. A potion would automatically work (barring being in an anti-magic or dispel magic zone).
        The panic was tv hype. Didn’t have much effect in urban areas but I heard that in som areas of the country had some people take it seriously.
